3:32 am
killed by a black police officer. those protests spread over the course of at least five hours overnight, ending up there on i-8 5 where they circled around some 18 wheelers and looted the contents. and you saw what they did there, with the contents, they started setting them on fire. >> and police say demonstrators also destroyed several marked police vehicles as well as approximately a dozen officers injured. one who is reported to have been hit in the face with a rock. they say, instead, they found this man in a car, they say with a gun. and when he came out of the car with a gun, police say they opened fire. scott's family is contesting that saying he was not armed. >> and the family's account couldn't be any more difference. they say he was disabled. they say he had a book and they say he was simply reading. but as you can tell, that has triggered what was a powder keg in the north charlotte area as many people started coming out. at one point, one reporter for wsoc said you had 5 to 80 people right there on the highway block
